Dave Gholson, bowling in the Thursday Men’s Commercial at Classic Lanes on April 23, rolled a triplicate score – a relatively rare feat in league bowling – on lanes 5-6. Compounding the odds was that the three consecutive identical scores nailed his average to the pin.
Gholson went into the night’s play carrying a 206 average with The Welding Store team and proceeded to shoot a 206-206-206 block for a 618 series. I’ve been around the game a spell and seen a number of triplicate scores, but that’s the first time I recall a triplicate average set.
Other gunners also put up some impressive numbers during the week ending April 24, including Laura Ballard’s solid 674 series in the Tuesday Night Mixed League on April 21 to top the women’s weekly scoreboard.
Ballard also posted the women’s high game for the week in her 223-257-194 effort on lanes 11-12 while bowling with the Irish Pride team. She entered the night’s action with a 186 average. The set gave her a 731 handicap series for the evening.
Ralphie Harrod put together another fine effort with a 238 game and 600 series in the Sunday Night Mixed league on April 19. Averaging 166 to open play, she hit the 238 in game one, followed with a 202 and closed with 160 for the 600 even.
Six men put seven 700 or better sets on the board during the week. Colby Pullen and Tarry Davison shot 734 and 731 respectively in the Sunday Night Mixed. In the Tuesday Night Mixed, Cliff Whitney rolled a 712 and Jason Keller a 703. On Thursday, Harold McClure fired a 739, Keller a 707 and Russ Nuss a 700 even.
